Here we go as we shuffle along with the Grammy nominated house DJ Chris Lake! This time we ventured out to one of our favorite frequents in U-Street Music Hall on Friday, Oct. 20! As one of the minds behind several of dance music’s biggest productions, it was no surprise that the crowd was sold out in anticipation of the Englishman.
English DJ and producer Chris Lake recently collaborated with Skrillex on the compilation HOWSLA, which includes his own single “I Want You.” The compilation hit #1 on the iTunes electronic chart, and his single has continued to receive robust airplay. Now on his Lose My Mind Tour, Chris arrives at U Street Music Hall on Friday, Oct. 20, to spin some house.
The annual All Things Go Fall Classic music festival successfully expanded to three days last week, launching with an evening of dance music on Friday, Oct. 6, at Union Market’s Dock 5. Headliners The Knocks and Galantis brought their top game to the dock, where revelers danced the night away in the wonderfully warm weather of the night.
At U Street Music Hall on Saturday night, a sold-out room cheered when the lights went down and four white-clad musicians stepped onto stage.
The leader of those musicians, Marius Lauber, better known as Roosevelt, took the center of the stage, where he sang and alternated between guitar and synthesizer for the night, treating the crowd to selections from his self-titled debut album, released last year by Greco-Roman.
Recently, our focus is locked in on the talented producer and disc jockey, Abraham Laguna, better known as Ookay. The talented Ookay started making high energy house beats while he was attending community college under the name “Leisure.” He has since transitioned into his current moniker releasing consecutive bass hits, trap after trap!
Ookay dropped by Echostage to open for NGHTMRE on May 19 during MEGA DC.
There’s a huge party going down at Echostage on Friday, May 19, called MEGA DC, featuring NGHTMRE with Ookay, Rickyxsan, Savage Patch, and Rawle Night Long!
That’s an action-packed line-up, but let’s talk a bit about Ookay, the young house and trap producer from San Diego.
